Free comedy is everywhere on the Internet, and this helpful guide will show you the easiest and most reliable places to watch comedy online.

If you are looking for exclusive funny video clips from today’s hottest comedians,Guest Posting Funny Or Die should be one of the first websites you visit.  Funny or Die was started by comedian Will Ferrell and his partner Adam McKay through their Gary Sanchez production company.  Funny Or Die separates itself from other funny video clip hosting sites by the way it lets people rank the videos, get enough funny votes and the video will be immortalized get enough die votes and the video will be sent into the “crypt”.  Another way Funny Or Die separates itself with it’s free comedy is the number high profile comedians it gets to contribute.  The videos with lesser known names are often by Los Angeles comedy improve teams and sketch groups.  If you need a quick laugh, check out Funny Or Die’s very first funny video clip, the Landlord staring Will Ferrell.

The Upright Citizens Brigade started as a sketch comedy troupe consisting of comedians Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh.  The troupe of comedians eventually went on to star in a television show on Comedy Central that lasted for a few years.  Their website UCBtheater.com is the home of the Upright Citizens Brigade, an improv comedy school, a comedy theater and host to some of the funniest video clips online today.  As LA comedy students perfect their craft they also pump out funny video clips that can to be distributed online.  Additionally the founding members often times contribute their own comedy, often times creating materials with the in house troupes in the LA comedy scene and NY comedy scene.  If you are looking for a funny video from the Upright Citizens Brigade check out the LA comedy group Cream and their video ‘We Got Your B-Roll’.

Originally started as a print publication in 1988 The Onion is now a premier destination for funny video clips on the Internet.  From college press publication, to premier destination to watch comedy online The Onion has come a long way.  Like a traditional newspaper the Onion covers all aspects of the news, sports, entertainment and politics.  Their satirical videos are one of the most downloaded free comedy clips online today.  Great production quality makes The Onion’s funny videos almost indistinguishable from an actual news broadcast.  The Onion.com’s video clips have become so popular online it has spawned a new show for Comedy Central called Sports Dome, focusing on their sports related satire.  If you need a hilarious link to watch comedy online check out ‘Sick Girl Fulfills Dream of Heckling David Wright’.

YouTube would seem like the first place to go when seeking out funny video clips online. However with YouTube’s massive collection of free comedy, it’s tough to sort through what comedy videos are worth checking out.  Instead I would recommend checking out Youtubefunnyvideoclips.com, which picks the best free comedy on YouTube so you don’t waste all day searching for funny videos.  Their webpage is updated daily and is a good place to check out funny videos that will be going viral.  Comedians aren’t the only ones creating funny video clips online, many of the greatest funny videos are created through unintentional comedy.  One funny video that kept me laughing, is simply titled ‘Women Falls into Fountain while Texting’.

Collectively these sites are a great start to finding funny video clips online.  Often times though the easiest way to find a great free comedy video is through word of mouth. Through email and social networking funny clips are passed around from person to person, often creating a buzz drawing more attention and more views until the funny video clip reaches a saturation point with millions of views. But if you want to be a head of the game and are looking to watch free comedy online make sure to stay up to date with Funny Or Die.com, The Onion.com, UCBtheater.com and Youtubefunnyvideoclips.com.
